  • Intro:

    Distilled by Glenallachie distillery, this single malt Scotch comes to us in the form of a cask strength single cask release for the Texas based retailer Specs. Matured entirely in a PX (Pedro Ximenez) puncheon, this bottling is released at 52.9% ABV. Let's dig in.

  • Nose:

    Honey, sweet sourdough, brown sugar and caramelized sugars. Rich plum, fig, stewed fruits and a touch of jammy blackberry.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate, packed with blackberries, cherries, stewed fruits, a touch of blueberry and bold spice. Pepper, ginger, clove, cocoa, this single cask has plenty of spice and savory cocoa to offset the jamminess. A touch of heat but nothing punishing, tons of character.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, a touch hot, but plenty flavorful. Peppery, clove forward, a touch of cherry cordial candies, toffee. The PX is pretty restrained overall, contributing and not overshadowing.

  • Overall:

    Overall this is a pretty nice single cask, with lots of character and plenty of depth for the age. Not too wine forward, and delightfully complex. Great stuff Glenallachie.

  • Score:

    6
